4:06pm
work hard and can't win races. talk to us about that? >> it's kind of a look at the point. and they have a in iowa, like a lot of other states, democrats outnumber republicans. they can get them to the polls and they theoretically win, the problem is getting them to the polls. key according to one candidate is one on one contact, but also byic organized for america which is the formerc president's campaign group. take a listen. >> it was the secret weapon. i think it's going to be very important why we can do better than some of the pundits in washington. >> reporter: there are a lot of races that can tilted back, he believess high watermark you're seeing in the polls for kepublicans. when democrats go back to work they can turn a lot of electio
4:07pm
ns around. >> gregg: do they both admit that republicans are generally far more excited and energized about the election? >> they do. and they do understand that and they do note historilly the midterm election goes against the party of the president. they understand thereh is that o go against wil, it. there has to be more energy out there to propel the people they believe are likely voters, perhaps not regular voters but irregular or independent that might not otherwise vote for their democratic team. >> gregg: steve brown, thanks very much. >> julie: with the november elections weeks away, tea party activists are out in forced to with a message to voters from coast to coast. this was the scene in our nation's capital earlier today.
4:08pm
similar rallies were held in sacramento and st. louis. these gatherings are calling attention as what they describe big government gone out of control. we'll have a live report on this march in d.c. later this hour. >> greggg: democrats taking direct aim at top house republican john boehner stepping up their political attack ads. president even attacking boehner in a recent speech. here is the president earlier this week and boehner this moing onbs's face the nation. >> to most of you, i bet it seems like common sense. [ laughter ] >> but not to mr. boehner and his allies. four years republicans have fought to keep these corporate -- in fact when mr. boehner was here in cleveland he attacked us for closing a few of thesee w loopholes. there were no new policies from
4:09pm
mr. boehner. there were no new ideas. >>regg here is what the minority lhder had to say this morning. >> listen, the president says no new ideas, we've offered him new ideas for the last 20 months. speaking of new, i wonder what is new about more stimulus spending, more taxes and more uncertainty for american small businesses. what is new about that? as f the preside wants to do something new, why don't we cut spending and get rid of this notion that we can continue to spend our way back to prosperitg >> gregg: jiang he is adam goldberg. let me start with you. the president singling out aehner eight times on wednesday alone. we were looking at two new pollt that are out and most americans
4:10pm
don't have a clue to who he is. don't you want to pick a guy that people have heard of? >> it's all the more obvious, that voters will be out there and voting against president obama or against democrats. they need to understand better ho they will be voting for. congressman boehn has rich history of various things angod good game for democrats to point that out. >> gregg: david, between now and the ection, votersay be familiar with boehner who could be the next speaker of the house and they might not like what th hear. front page article. here it is, "new york times" claims that he is in bed with powerfulby lobists. he once apologized to hand out tobacco lobbyist contributions on t house floor. this may work? >> this strategy is pre the
4:11pm
best example there is in meltdown mode. they don't want to have to defend an economic record they pit together. if you are sitting in south carolina or michigan and you are unemployed you don't care who john boehner or nancy pelosi is. you want to know who is going to washington and create jobs. what is really unfortunate this president promised to be a different admistration, that we weren't going to have this type of attack. we weren't going to havehi politics go this way. what we found is what he has done differently than the other 43 presidents is taken us away from the economic foundations that made this country great. >> gregg: adam, in the introduction you heard the clip speech on wednesday accusings boehner have having no plans or ideas or policies. that very more than morning, boehner put out there right
4:12pm
here, a new set of proposals that would have cut none security government spending back to 2008 levels. in fairness, would you agree that the president should at least get his facts straight if he is going the atck somebod >> i think you try to say t,hi is new, somebody puts this on paper. >> that was new, freezing it back to 2008 levels that was brand-new? >> it's not that significant when you talk about what john boehner wants to do, tax cuts. extend the george bush tax cuts. you are talking about the bad economy, and last four quarters inad a row, we have had growth n our economy. we had four quarters of job growth. the president has done a lot. what the democrats have not done well at is defining themselves and defining their economics
4:13pm
well enough. so they need to do a better job by defining themselves and accomplishments. >> gregg: speaking of defining their adversaries. here the new ad. >> you think republicans have no plan for the economy? it's not true. johnos boehner opposes funding government jobs, jobs for teachers, jobs for firefighters. boehner has a different plan. tax cuts for businesses, those that shift jobs and profits overse. saving corporations ten billion. >> gregg: would you admit that effecti ad? >> it's not true. >> gregg: that is irrelevant and you know that. >> here is the good thing about the strategy. it's going to give john boehner and republicans an opportunity to talk about what we are for. we are talking about keeping funding obama care so thesses,
4:14pm
government isn't taking over the health care system. bringing government spending unde control so people who want to create jobs, people who want to start a new business, they'll know there is economic uncertain toy. here is the other good thing or bad thing. there will be a lot of democrats come november who are going to join the 15 million americans unemployed and see how bad and how disastrous the white house and congress at creating jobs. >> gregg: i was looking at nancy pelosi, her approval ratings. they are chronically abysmal. she set a new record for a low of the speaker of t house. speaker boehner might by comparison may sotound appealing to voters. >> as you pointed out, very few people know of him right now. wasy that john boehner against extending the unemployment benefits but the budget office when analyzed
4:15pm
raises to stimulate the economy, john boehner was number 11 at extending unemployment benefits he oppose that had. >> david and adam, thank you both for being with us. >> julie: chief economic advisor offering words of caution on the job front today.p predicting the nation's jobless rate will remain high for the foreseeable future. he says the country cannotxt afford to extend t cuts for the wealthy. >> having taxes for very hh income people, an average of more than $100,000 a year for people that made more than a million dollars a years not an effective way to get the economy going. >> julie: joining me now is business correspondent brenda butner. he says that u nemployment miss be met with tax cuts.
4:16pm
ms you probably heard, house minority leader john boehner he wants to dog for all americans and extending rates would he create jobs. my question to you , if the democrats have their way, what happens to the business owners that are making what he consider wealthy cla $250,000 or more? >> mostf them are small businesses which are the big hirers in our economy. basically, their income rates would go to pre-2001 levels. from 33% to 36 to 39%.ig torhat is big jump forhem. but the issue that they are at the center of this debate and there is so much uncertainty about what is it going to happen to them. if you are a small business owner, will you going to hire someone if you haveo idea of the tax rated is going to be up next year? that is the real question. >> julie: congressman boehner
4:17pm
appeared on face the nation. he says republicans are willing o toote for -i want you t listen to this. >> as the only oion i have,o those taxme of reductions, i'll vote for them. but i've been making tfohe point for months that we need to extends all the current rates for all americans. >> julie: so if republicans are willing to vot for cuts for the middle-class something that democrats are pushing for, will democrats compromise when it comes to taxing those making more than $250,000? >> i'm not sure. the issue is thatoc many democrs have been saying that weeed to extend the cuts to all earners for at least a year. so making a compromise now r republicans doesn't seem to make much sense. business owners again are going to be saying, what is it going
4:18pm
t happen to snus we have no idea who is supporting the cuts, who isot supporting the cuts. so it's the uncertainty that is the issumae. >> julie: if the obama administration is recognizingt that the unemployment elevate going to stay where it is for quite some time, obviously they want to get the message across before november. esehner says the top 3% we with would term small businesses and you don't want t punish these people, that spending should be cut to 2008 levels which would be 20% reduction. how could letting the small taxs cuts for small business owners expire affecthe the economy? >> the democrats say it on would cause some $700 billion of the 4 trillion that extending ald dlle cuts would do. there is that issue that it might cost money. in fact, tax revenues increased after the bush tax cuts.u
4:19pm
so you have to look at both sides of the picture here. >> julie: there are two sides. o yvery much. >> is there an alpha dog in your h ouse reigning supreme. how i can restore the pecking order in your home straight ahead. tylenol 8 hour lasts 8 hours. but aleve can last 12 hours. and aleve was proven to work better on pain than tylenol 8 hour. so why am i still thinking about this? how are you? good, how are you?

4:46pm
cycles and market fluctuations for a month's period of time that equates right about now. look at the volatility there. in 2008 it on dropped, in 2006 it on gained04 points. why the volatility? >> this is traditionally a very volatile time of the year. i though the markets are going to react what is going on. part of the problem people have been taking it easym and quiet time in the markets. we had the labor day holiday and jewish holiday. people areoming back to work. they will start paying attention to the data. >> gregg: if stocks this gained thr times on average after the midterm elections, generally the mid termso see a change in power and dominance, might there be an electol tsunami come november
4:47pm
that would give a huge boost to the markets? >> yeah, i think there is some credence to that. the truth of the matter when you get to the midterm elections, people are looking for some kind of change. whichever party is in charge, c the other party comes back and takes ownership in congress. what it does it chris creates an environment with legislation that is more balanced. especially this year we are looking forward to thand a perhaps coming up with a decent yer in terms of what the markets will do. >> gregg: i was looking at a graph the last six months and last year, boy, the volatility there on an annual basis has been pretty tremendous. yet for the year, what the spdz and dow virtually unchanged? >> i think the average persoon the street doesn't know that. they are looking at it on a day-to-da basis. one day it's goo and next day

4:49pm
cerinly washington isn't doing much to help us there. the pubc is very upset. average consumer is saying, if i do have a job, i'm going to hold on t o my money. the person that doesn't have a job, they have been without a job for a long time. this was a negative picture on the whole economic cycle. i think the november elections are going to reflect that. >> and your view on raising taxes during a recession? >> it on just adds to the negative i was b gng there but the bottom line the only entity that is capable of spending money is u.s. government and nobody is in the mood. thus thetalemate and the markets being flat for the year. >> gregg: onhe revenue side, how aboutti cutting spending? >> listen, we do it on in our own budgets and corporations do it. why can't the g government? >> gregg: good to see you.

basically capital, amount of capital that the banks have to keep on the balance sheet. that's a huge, huge difference in the way that the banks m operate. it will make them less profitable. the idea is to cut down on risk. the question is did they go too far, did the pendulum swing too far in regulation? a >> gregg: in fact, banks are so unpy about the plan, some of them at least, they claim could end the global economic recovery, that is tentative at best. >> bottom line, they' not as willing to lend. lending at this point is the only way we are going to jumpstart the econy. they will be less profitable. the european banki community said that it would keep europe in recession until 2014.

they're lobbying and fighting hard against us. >> gregg: there is a leverage ratio of 3%. what does that mean to us? >> leverage is basically borrowing from some place to stinve somewhere else. this ratio is introduced. we basically didn't have the ratio before. we think it might hurt the smaller banks that have safer credit and don't invest i leverage instruments. again from small to big. the banks fight it in a big way. >> julie: protesters rumbling with riot police in northern greece. demonstrators protesting severe cost-cutting measures in the debt-ridden country. thousands gather outside trade fair with the country prime minister spoke. no arrests reported. the cutbacks are condition of $140 billion international bail-out paage.

5:23pm
following. a lot of muslims and a lot of countries, including perhaps in the united states bscr tc ibeo this and sympathetic to a view of islam. irgue i tt that is part of the reason that you have this phenom of the home grown terrorists and it's also the reasonim that you don't have muslims around the world standing up and protesting against the violence, the vicious violence carried out by the jihadist muslims against other muslims. w sense of silence with them. president obama as i argue and basically i think inadvertently is feeding this myth of islam under oppression. by essentially saying here in america we have a lot to apologize for. the feeling we're islamphobic country is a myth. >>ulie: what kind ofen message does it send when the president is making apologies?
5:24pm
to those who believe theem myth it vindicates them. they say even the presint of the united states admits it. you have the ground zero mosque, a big evented now, provocative act. people rightly protest it. i believe it's inhe wrong location as do millions of other americans. so people supporting it say you're hostile tom islam. the distortion of facts serve the purpose of those who feel they're under attack. >> julie: michael goodwin, thank you very much. >> my pleasure. >> gregg: britain's prince charles is laugh something hard he's being drawn to tears. the reason? a man playing an organ made from 16 squeaky toy cats.

5:31pm
including the palestinians to be there in the room and make bold decisions which will ena enable fruitful process for peace. >> leland has more from jerusalem. >> it's a bad sign when everybody is arguing over what they will talk about first. palestinians want to talk about boarder with the state. and israelis want to talk about security force. that's top of mind. in the past few hours at least three palestinians were killed and two wounded by israeli smelling on the gaza strip. that may have been in retaliation for at least five qassam rockets that were launched by militants down there. over the weekend, israeli jets pounded targets down on the gaza strip that are hamas strongholds. we saw violence leading up to the lastou rnd of talks in washington. it appears this round will be more of the same. qassam rockets didn't hurt anybody but a clear indication that hamas is
5:32pm
going to continue their attack to try to disrupt things. both the palestinians and israelis seem to be trying to deal with the attacks separately from the broadr peace talks, which is a good sign. today in the cabinetim meeting, prime minister netanyahu laid out his negotiating position and it included that palestinians recognize israel fa jewish state. so far, the palestinians refuse to do so. eith sides are continuing to play out their differences in the press. they jockey for negotiating position. historically, that's bn a bad sign. the more hardline part of each government start to make demands in thera newspapers rather than at the negotiating table. >> this all starts to play out in the next 48 hours and it begins in sharm el-sheikh, egypt, where everyone ss down to meetin. both leaders including secretary of state hillary clinton will fly t jerusalem to continue the talks. it's important to keep in mind both israelis and the palestinians put things to out that they call deal breakers, that the other side
